Several years ago I was taken to the hospital on account of a broken limb resulting from a fall, and I remained there over three months. As my improvement was very slow I became very much discouraged and despondent. Smiles and gifts of friends had no power to lift this feeling of discouragement. Previously I had no understanding of Christian Science. I had heard many adverse criticisms of it and also some rumors of good concerning its practice; yet I was not sufficiently awakened to study it for myself. One day a friend, a Christian Scientist, brought me some extracts from Christian Science literature and some Christian Science pamphlets. I was faithful in reading all that she gave to me and in a short time the clouds of despondency vanished and I was again cheerful, happy, and hopeful, realizing I had nothing to fear, for God in His great love would take care of me. I have not had that feeling of discouragement and despondency since. I read Christian Science literature every day during the remainder of my stay in the hospital, and have had many wonderful proofs of God's protection and care. Through the understanding of the teachings of Christian Science I have been healed of bowel trouble of long standing, and of sleeplessness and nervousness.

For a number of years I had been a member of a denominational church, but I never applied the teachings of Christ Jesus as I am now able to do with results following. I have discovered that all I ever heard against Christian Science is false, as my understanding and practice have brought nothing but good in the way of better health, contentment, peace, more love for humanity, and a larger knowledge of God and of man's relation to Him. I can now say with Job, "I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee," and can echo the truth that "every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."
